Some caution: For most healthy people a high-protein diet generally isn't harmful. But some high-protein diets restrict carbohydrate intake too much & can result in nutritional deficiencies or insufficient fiber which can cause bad breath, headache and constipation. Also Some high-protein diets include foods such as red meat and full-fat dairy products, which may increase the risk of heart disease.
